Refreezing previously frozen food

TroyTempest | Aug 4, 2011 02:01 PM

One of the first things that i learned regarding food safety, etc. was to not refreeze food that has already been frozen. However, I'd like to know exactly why this is.
I know texture wise, things like fish don't hold up well. But, as far as making you sick. What's the reason.
Now to the reason for the question. I have a ham in the fridge. It was frozen sometime in April and is now thawed out and i am now eating on it. I am now faced with throwing the leftovers away, or can it be refrozen.
At the very least, i'd like to save the bone to throw in a pot of beans.
